Youth To Pack Fairview Meeting?
Word around town is that parents of youth sports participants have been asked to present their kids - in uniform - at the meeting of the Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee Wednesday beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Neighborhood Community Center that evening to show support for speakers scheduled that night who will plead their case for playing fields in the park. It seems that some members of their leadership feel that the youth sports groups have been under-represented so far. Their view is that only the voices of those who want to keep the park as it is have been heard so far.
When I heard that comment I did a classic double-take, because there are several members of the committee who have been quite vocal on the issue from the beginning. In fact, based on their comments, some of the members would be very happy to cover most of the park with fields.
ON A SCHOOl NIGHT?
So, I guess you can expect the meeting Wednesday to be packed with children on a school night to plead for more fields.
MAY BE A MOOT POINT
Unfortunately, because of imprudent actions by a misguided few recently, the federal government is now deeply involved in the park and their representatives are not a bit happy with our stewardship of that municipal treasure. It is possible, based on the thoughtless, selfish actions by a few, that the park will be placed off limits for any kind of future "enhancements".
